I like to think that life is full of crazy impossibilities that somehow come to fruition. Where we all can have a space, where we find ourselves completely satisfied and fulfilled before we get distracted by our days, our buzyness, our burgeoning amounts of responsibilities.
I find it suffocating to think of all the things that loom in both my short term and long term future. As an artist/potter/creative type I am always busy but also mindful about creating an income to support that life. It's a daily challenge, sometimes a roller coaster. I have to put on my adult face and think about supplies, bills, location for classes... not always the most fun. We will be looking to relocate soon and my husband told me to make a list of what I would think would be the ideal spot. I drug my feet for a few days because while I do dream a lot I had never wanted to actually 'voice' what my dream is because I would never expect to get it. But......what if I did? What if I could put it out there, into the universe, pray about it, ask God and believe that life is really full of possibilities that COULD happen, could be realized if I just simply had faith that they would? Seems fair enough to me because I know that when I do the opposite, figure I'll flop, figure it won't happen, figure it will never be, I do get rewarded with exactly what I expect.
So today, I'm putting it out there. I'm praying about it and I'm asking for what I really, really, really want and it may seem SkyPie wishes but I'm standing by and waiting for it. And yes, SkyPie is my word. I made it up and I'm standing by it too. It may be the name of my new art studio - SkyPie Studios, where people come to dream.
Here's my list... I want a new art space, large with a studio to welcome customers and have things on display; a large work space for art and clay students to create and explore, somewhere I can work on large paintings, dye fabric or build a huge paper mache rocket if I want to. And a small house next to it that has a couple of bedrooms, farm kitchen and two bathrooms.....and a grassy yard so my RosieTheDog can roll around and smile while keeping her ball from us..... My place is out there, it just hasn't found me yet, but now I'm calling for it.
In the meantime - I've been doing some amazing work!
